You might never heard this: there are people out there are some people who believe that ultimate freedom for all individuals can be achieved by abolishing the formal dress codes that rob people of their humanity — and these guys are serious!
Rejecting to be deceived by an illusion of freedom as uniformed prisoners stacked and ranked against each other in a sea of grey, homogenised conformity under, what they call, “the fascist state of corporate rule” they started an organization called PAST or People Against Suits and Ties. Silly name, but they are — let me remind you once again — are serious.
Springleap is about this issue too. Recently, Springleap community has chosen one themed-competition winner for the Official t-shirt for Casual Day — also in collaboration to promote PAST’s manifesto. Winning designer TokyoGoGo from South Africa, with his wack A Casual Invasion design, explaines the story behind his fancy idea:
The illustration is all about casual clothes taking over! The Suits and ties run for cover as an Invader casually roams past! Made out of everyday clothing, picking up the dreaded business folk in his path.”
The tee itself tee available in very limited run of 100 pieces (no future re-print promised) exclusively on Springleap online store — buy here! It is sold in conjunction with the Casual Day on September 4th, 2009. Proceeds of the sales will be going to charity to benefit the disabled.
